I have been feeling the need lately for a little extra boost in the morning. The cornflakes is just not cutting it! After browsing on Pinterest one morning I stumbled across 8 high protein and high nutrient smoothies to try for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up snack.

Here is the delight for this morning:
